I went with metal studs/track for our framing. I'm not that good with wood and metal with a pair of tin snipes was so much easier for me. Plus if you have an issue, moving a wall or adjusting a stud is as easy as backing out a few screws and making your adjustment.
I'm sure the people that are good with wood could do the very same thing though. No right or wrong way to do it.... just get out there and have fun with it.
